Subscribe to DMT’s weekly newsletter on http://bit.ly/dmtlist

This week on Digital Music Trends two great guests: Stephen O’Reilly (CMO at Shuffler.fm) and Stuart Dredge (Journalist at Music Ally, The Guardian) as well as an appearance by Spencer Hickman (Death Waltz Records, UK Coordinator of Record Store Day).

This week on the show we talk about Beat Music’s introduction of in-app payments on its iOS app and the recent articles suggesting the service hasn’t had a flying start, the reports of Shazam being integrated into iOS 8 and what that would mean for both the company and Apple, the reports on Record Store Day 2014 which was very successful but raised a few criticisms from the independent label community, the new lawsuit against Pandora from majors and the RIAA as they seek to get compensated for pre-1972 recordings, Samsung announcing 380k Milk app downloads but considering a premium tier, Rock in Rio’s plans for the first Las Vegas edition and much, much more. This weeks’ show notes with links to all the stories are here.


I really hope you enjoy the show, if you did subscribe to the channel or to the newsletter on bit.ly/dmtlist, have a fantastic week and ’till next time!

An interview with Mandar Thakur from Times Music India – DMT at MIDEM 2014

Digital Music Trends brings you some insights on the Indian music market thanks to this interview with Mandar Thakur, Chief Operating Officer at Times Music India, one of the largest independent music entities in the country. We chat about the structure of the industry, how music promotion works, streaming services, YouTube and lots more!

00:45 Tell us a little about Times Music
01:53 Are the models that are applied in India very similar to the ones applied in the UK or US as far as licensing, royalties, record sales etc?
04:30 Are the majors present in India and what are their market shares?
08:25 As India’s music scene is directly linked to the movie industry, how do you get fans to know about your music?
09:55 What are the largest music streaming services in India?
The biggest challenge for 3rd party streaming services will be to be able to license the catalog that they need to actually become an appealing service to the country. What are your thoughts on this issue?
